fathers day in boca raton

In the shadow of Mother's Day, our fathers are often the unsung heroes of our families. Stoic, courageous, and hardworking, the dads in our lives helped instill the discipline and values that perfectly complement the nurture and kindness our mothers bring to our lives. Whatever Dad does and wherever he lives, our dads are the blue-collar workers of the home. They are the first line of defense against palmetto bugs, always there for the yard work in the scorching heat,  and the first to pick you up after a day at the principal's office. For the many reasons above and many, many, more - we take a Sunday in June to celebrate and spend time with our leader, first friend, coach, and guardian.

It's time once again to celebrate the women who made us who we are. Our Mothers are the first people we meet on this planet, the first shoulder to cry on, the one who was always there for scraped knees, half-days, and our first breakup. Needless to say, there is not enough to do in a lifetime to truly thank these incredible women for the work they put into our lives, and that of our community. When someone says "it takes a village," they're referring in part to the many roles our mother's and our neighborhood moms have served to enrich and protect our future. From scout leader, to t-ball mom, chef, nurse, therapist, and yes, sometimes a drill Sargeant, is there anything these women can't do?

The New Year's Resolutioner's Guide To Boca Raton

resolutioners guide to boca raton

There is quite a debate around New Year's Resolutions. For the more goal-oriented among us, they are a must and a means to a beginning into the next year. They are the stars that guide us in the direction we wish our lives to be. For the more... whimsical and realistic, sometimes New Year's Resolutions, though well-intended, represent a goalpost we will likely fall short of, setting the stage for disappointment. It's not that the standard is impossible, but like a small child at a dessert buffet, sometimes we bite off more than we can chew. The answer lies somewhere in the middle. New Year's Resolutions should not be about the result or the destination, but the journey and the process it takes to reach them. In that way, we inculcate better habits without setting ourselves up to fail, and while we're at it, become more comfortable with ourselves and the trajectory of our lives. We're not here to judge you or tell you what to strive for or how hard to work for it. You deserve to grow on your schedule, free from the leering eyes and burdensome gazes of those beyond your circle. We referenced this Forbes Article regarding the latest in 2024 New Year's Resolutions. Whatever your New Year's Resolution is, take it at your own pace, and see if any of these Boca Raton, places, people, and things can make your life a bit better every day.
